Patriots WR Julian Edelman expected to play vs. Packers

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers scrambles as Los Angeles Rams linebacker Samson Ebukam defends during the first half of an NFL football game Sunday Oct. 28 2018 in Los Angeles

Additionally, it was a strong 6-0 on all top-rated picks in Week 8, including nailing the Redskins (-1) over the Giants and the Seahawks (+3) over the Lions. However the disparity in rankings is seen more in points scored on offense, where the Patriots are ranked fourth in the league and the Packers are ranked 13th.

Joe Flacco and the Ravens won the first meeting this season, 26-14 on September 30, and Baltimore will try to complete its first series sweep since 2015. The Packers defeated the Patriots in Super Bowl XXXI which is the only postseason matchup between these two franchises. "Coach McCarthy does a great job with this team, this organization".

The NFL clash gets underway in the early hours of Monday morning at 1.20am GMT.

The way to beat Brady is also to pressure him up the middle.

Despite Rodgers' numerical superiority nearly across the board, it is Brady who continues to be more successful.

So far this season, the Packers defense has looked good against the pass and just okay against the run. But, the Patriots stayed focused as they held on for a 31-17 win over the Packers. So the rookie punter went about his business in punting five times for a net average of 42.0 yards in a strong performance against the Patriots. Adams had six catches for 121 yards on 11 targets, getting as many receptions and targets as he had the three previous games combined. Green Bay is in desperate need of a win to keep pace in the NFC playoff race. It takes a special player to put up with the challenges of Belichick for so long. This stint began in the previous week when the Patriots played the Buffalo Bills in their first game without Sony Michel.

The Patriots pass defense is vulnerable. It's doubtful Green Bay is giving up as it has Aaron Rodgers and when you have Rodgers, you always have a chance. Kevin King has a hamstring injury and his return is questionable.

New England has just three scores of 51.5 yards or more this year and two of those are from special teams and a defensive score. Devin McCourty gets in Rodgers' face on yet another third down, and Rodgers throws it nowhere near Equanimeous St. The two rookies have both showed improvement with each passing week.

The secondary can't give up big plays and that means that players must adapt quickly to their new roles.

Then there was a swarming defense, which bottled up quarterback Aaron Rodgers in critical situations and helped buy time for quarterback Tom Brady and the offense, which struggled for stretches. They ran Aaron Jones up the middle on their own one-yard line like that same thing did not just result in a safety just one week ago, but luckily escaped.

Pettine has stopped opposing running backs out of the backfield recently by treating them as receivers when choosing coverage matchups. Brown to force the Packers' first punt of the night. His speed can make any mistake in coverage costly. The Packers can not convert on 4th down and hand it back to the Patriots.

That was the turning point, as the Patriots turned a 17-17 tie into a victory by racing away down the homestretch. They might have to come close to that this time. Brady has an astounding 55 game-winning drives, and Rodgers has 21.
